    ... the coconut water collected and then the flesh taken out. The flesh was then grated and put into large cloth bags where they were pressed to remove the coconut milk. We were surprised to see the amount of coconut milk can be extracted from three bags of coconut about the size of a small tire. The coconut milk is then either sold as is or is cooked to make a cream or further cooked until it turns to a caramel or candy consistency. There were three girls there that ...

    We had an early start, getting on a bus to the Cu Chi Tunnels, with the guide explaining the history of the war and the Viet Cong on the way. The tunnels are an expansive network of underground passages which were lived in and used to surprise the Americans and keep an upper hand. The whole trip cost about £5 each which was great for a 6 hour adventure, and we certainly got our money's worth. The tour started with a short film which was slightly hard to understand and was probably ...

But they got smarter, and soon garlic, pepper, ...

    ... Visa and then I picked up my broken suitcase and walked on out. The air is pretty thick here but I find it surprisingly easy to breathe! Contiki warned me about taxi drivers who don't have meters and told me to stay away. So the first thing I ask my driver is if he has a meter and he says - "yes yes". He didn't have a meter. The he tells me that it will cost me 45000 (contiki said it would cost 120000) so I'm like SCORE! But I only have ...

    ... yet- my aim was beyond bad. The next day we started our trip through the Mekong delta. This was really nice. The floating market was brilliant. So many boats quickly rowing up to us trying to sell us everything and anything. We grabbed a coffee which was so good and some coconut juice. The guys at the back of the boat were dying after a night on the rice wine( we did warn them but it didn't stop them!). I think they ate the BBQ pork lady out of everything!! ...
